PAT’S THOUGHTS:

UMASS was annihilated by BC last weekend.  But they drilled Dusquene the week before.  Ga Southern killed SC State last week.  I think we are getting value by the public looking too deeply into the BC game.  As I said in my preseason Fishy Five, BC is legit.  I think UMASS is much improved.
